Now that Hawaii is the fiftieth American state, Liliuokalani's story is part of the American heritage, and, to place it in its frame, a brief background setting is necessary. THE extinct crater or mountain which forms the background to the city of Honolulu is known as the Punch-Bowl; at its base is situated the Queen's Hospital, so named because of the great interest taken in its erection by Emma, the queen of Kamehameha IV. Funds for the cause were solicited by the reigning sovereigns in person, and the hospital building was completed in 1860.

In 1898, the same year the book was originally published, Hawaiʻi was formally annexed by the United States of America. This book is seen by many in the Hawaiian sovereignty movement as a key source documenting the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy.

Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen is a book written by Queen Liliuokalani, the last monarch of the .

Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen is a book written by Queen Liliuokalani, the last monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Many of her assertions regarding the overthrow are contradicted by other primary sources, including the Morgan Report and the Native Hawaiians Study Commission Report of 1983.

The Hawaiian kingdom's last monarch wrote her biography in 1897, the year before the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands by the United States. Her story covers six decades of island history told from the viewpoint of a major historical figure. Introduction by Glen Grant.
  • Hawai`i's Story by Hawai`i's Queen Lili`uokalani details an account of the heartache and tragedy of the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy by the Committee of Safety (Missionary Party) in the late 1800s. Written in the Victorian style of the times by the queen herself, her account shows she was very well aware that she and her people were doomed. Lili`uokalani proves herself a very dignified and regal lady, every inch a queen. Highly recommended reading for the real facts of this tragic period of Hawaiian history.

  • I loved this book. Every phrase is elegant and precisely used. This style of composition, once the hallmark of the best writing, will be appreciated by anyone who relishes the English language.

    This remarkable Queen recounts the victimization of Hawaii and how she and her forbears tried to preserve the islands as a free nation.

    Hawaii’s loss of nationhood began with the arrival of New England Protestant missionaries, self-righteous and eager to proselytize but before long ready to exploit and dispossess. They and their descendants found chickens ready for plucking: a fertile tropical Island of unsuspecting natives who could be ensnared in crooked politics and cheated in land deals.

    Gradually Hawaii was transformed. Instead of preserving its self-sustaining rural lifestyle, it became the prey of scavengers, the modern barons. Pre-eminent among them was the Dole family which turned the age-old system of small, personal farms into acres of pineapple fields worked by thousands of Chinese “coolies”.

    In time, this new, wealthy class, using threats and schemes, succeeded in taking control of the government. The Queen’s predecessors yielded of necessity, unable to prevent the disenfranchisement of the vast majority of native inhabitants. Only a tenth of the populace could now vote.

    Becoming Queen on the death of her brother, Liliuokalani faced alone the implacable empire builders.

    Powerful interests were working to join Hawaii to the United States. Admiral Mahan, with his worship of sea power, saw that these magnificent islands offered more than plantations: their central position in the Pacific promised an ideal harbor for provisioning ships, dominating shipping lanes and threatening the Asiatic rim. In the end, the Queen’s enemies resorted to brute force and it was finally the marines who trampled on the rights of the Hawaiian people.

    The Queen was a truly great lady, highly educated, a remarkable writer, a gifted composer (of that heartbreaking hymn to Hawaii, Aloha Oe). Besides a brilliant mind, she possessed a powerful sense of justice and enormous compassion for her Hawaiian subjects. Her patriotism was the pure kind, not that vicious distortion so diligently nurtured in the conquering nation, that chauvinism which features contempt for other cultures as its hallmark. She repeatedly speaks kindly and admiringly of the United States in all respects but this one: that a nation blessed with endless horizons and all the bountiful gifts of nature should covet yet more land, even islands so far from its shores.

    In addition, being always able to appreciate personal kindness, she speaks warmly and gratefully of President Grover Cleveland. And she remembers President McKinley as a consummate gentleman toward a woman, a fallen Queen and a supplicant for her nation.

    Her bitterest scorn is reserved for John Leavitt Stevens, the United States Minister to the Kingdom of Hawaii, whose slander turned the government at Washington and the American public against the Royal Family. John Stevens was a figure of Dickensian evil and duplicity, a liar, traducer, schemer, truly the symbol of everything despicable about American colonial policy. He was a fanatic of the sort any decent person would loathe. Such men are a curse to any nation; how criminal that he should have been foisted on the unfortunate Hawaiians. But of course, like all ambassadors, he was carefully chosen for his dishonesty and unscrupulousness. It is astonishing that there is never a scarcity of ruthless functionaries to be inflicted on foreign lands.

    John Stevens could be counted on to tell his fellow conspirators in Congress what they wanted to hear. With this type of scoundrel a coup d’etat can be guaranteed, and it was.

    Besides forcing the Queen to abdicate and imprisoning her to stifle her voice, her enemies did not hesitate to lie. She was accused of threatening to cut off the heads of her country’s persecutors, a calumny taught as late as the1940’s and perhaps later -- in volumes called history books.

    Occasionally chickens do come home to roost and they came for John Stevens, whose daughter drowned while returning from a trip to one of the islands to gather signatures for another of her father’s crooked schemes. This loss darkened the rest of his life.

    For the truth about this crime against an island people, I strongly recommend Queen Liliuokalani’s history of colonial aggression and domination ending in the tawdry drama of marines marching ashore and surrounding the government buildings of a sovereign nation.

  • This woman was a remarkable "Regal" lady. She wrote with such capability, her sweet, yet humble spirit poured out in every page. Having spent a substantial number of years living in Hawaii, I am very familiar with the stories of the power plays which resulted in the takeover of the Islands by the United States. There is little doubt that this was a very black period in our American History. She spoke with such sadness as her way of life, and the very way of life of her people and country were wrested from them. Hawaii is a part of my emotional DNA -- I love the people and the strong, sweet and kind way they share their lives with all who visit. It is tragic that there are so very few real Hawaiians left today (2017) -- yet the spirit of the islands lives on. Read her story, sing her songs, and feel the spirit of both this remarkable lady, and her incredible life!
